1 Chain Discountschain discount: series of discounts or when more than one discount is given – a discount on an already discounted priceAnother discount that can happen is that of a chain discount. A chain discount is where there is more than one discount that will be used on one product.A supplier may offer chain discounts to sell out a discontinued item or to encourage you to place a larger order.A chain discount is a series of discounts.
2 For chain: 35% less 20% less 15% or 35/20/15 Does this mean 70% off?no35% discount is deducted from the retail price to yield first net priceThen, 20% is deducted from first net price to yield second net priceThen 15% is deducted from the second net price to yield final net priceAn example of a chain discount would be where a business has taken a product and already discounted 35% off and you discount an additional 20% off and you offer a 15% coupon to customers to increase sales.This does not mean 35% + 20% + 15% off.35% discount is deducted from the list (retail) price to yield first net price.20% of first net price is deducted from first net price to yield second net price.15% of second net price is deducted from second net price to yield final net price.
3 For Example Retail price is $400. Chain discount is 30% less 25%. Find the first net priceDollar Discount = X =First Net Price = =Final net priceFinal Net Price = =List price is $400. Chain discount is 30% less 25%.Find the first net price.Paid Percent of 30% = 70%400 * .70 = 280Find the final net price.Paid Percent of 25% = 75%280 * .75 = 210
4 Make it simple Chain Shortcut Formula Retail Price x (1 – 1st discount) x (1 – 2nd discount)Example List Price of $200. Chain discount is 15% less 25%Net Price: x X =$200 x (1-.15) x (1-.25)$200 x (.85) x (.75)Answer = $127.50
